    Hello guys,

    So i'm after my second EDC bag.
    Yes, i only have one :)
    So, i've narrowed down my research to the NeatFreak or the Remora.
    Does any of you have both?
    If so, feel free to do a comparison :)
    Also, if you have any suggestion on a bag like it with similar dimensions, specially with those kind of organizing pockets, just let know.
    As always, the cheaper the better :)

    Thanks

    I have the neatfreak. For strictly edc it's about perfect. All the bare essentials can fit with some small extras to stash like food or whatever you like. If you're going for a more understated look I think the neatfreak fits the bill.

    Now while I don't own a remora I can say it looks bigger. The carry method looks comfortable as well. I'm not sure how much you edc but for me the remora is almost too big. I do have a maxped typhoon gearslinger and while it's bigger than the remora would be an option for you if you need the space.

    You don't have a bad option when it comes to maxpedition stuff. I just got their compact range bag and have carried a laptop in their last resort tactical attaché bag for six years. It's still going strong! All their stuff is tough as nails.

    I don't own a Remora, but I do have a Lunada which is a little bigger. My wife and both tried the Neat Freak; and while it's a fantastic bag, it's a little too busy. You can get an amazing amount of stuff in it, and if your anything like I am you need to use all of its organization. After using it for a week or so you'll need a map to remember where everything is. YMMV however.
    I prefer the Lunada for a small EDC. It does have nice organization and is more comfy to carry. It's size limits you from overloading it, which is the Gearslinger's biggest problem. They get heavy quick. Good luck with your purchase!

    thanks guys.
    i ended up buying "kind of" a lunada :D
    the size seems that will fit my needs better so that was my decision.
    thanks all

    The Spec Ops Pack Rat is the same size as the Neatfreak but not so...."busy".
